Stop Work Order Issued at Paulaner Brauhaus on the Bowery
Well that certainly didn’t take long! Nigh on a week after Paulaner began tearing apart the interior of 267 Bowery for its flagship brewery, the DOB issued both a stop work order and a partial vacate order. According to paperwork filed with the city agency, it was feared that the structural stability of number 265 has been compromised because “they are ripping out the floorboard in an unsafe manner…concerned that the floor in apartment 2 may cave in.”
Furthermore, one Boogie commenter had this to say about the recent developments here:
Many people in the community have expressed cautious reservations and concerns about this establishment, and it turns out many of the problems have gotten worse rather than better. The city has posted a “Stop Work” order on construction due to hazardous, unsafe practice on-site, which has apparently caused noxious dust to spew into the neighboring apartments of families and other residents.
In general this operation has failed to listen to any of the community’s concerns and has avoided engaging in any dialogue. Some say this is completely different from how Keith McNally operated in developing Pulino’s across the street, as he spoke with neighbors regularly from the early planning stages until the present. These “big time” corporate business folks are evidently much less willing to care about what’s actually happening on the ground. And it looks like this attitude is already biting them in the ass.
Meanwhile, the white plywood has already become a prime target for taggers. No surprise there.
